Quality Homecare Solutions For Your Loved One
Introducing Personal Emergency Response Systems for seniors
It goes without saying that every older adult wishes to maintain their independent lifestyle for as long as possible and continue living in their home. Unfortunately, sooner or later, the majority of senior Americans have to deal with problems such as deteriorating health, arising medical conditions, mobility impairments, and cognitive disorders. These common challenges of aging may contribute to a reduced quality of life and put seniors’ independence to the test. As a result, older adults often experience medical emergencies, falls, and accidents.
If you have a loved one who can manage independently, but you are worried about their well-being and safety, Comfort Keepers can help. Apart from providing a wide array of customized homecare services, we offer a number of technological solutions designed to boost safety in senior homes. Our most sought-after products include Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) from SafetyChoice. These sophisticated medical alert systems allow seniors to immediately call for help in case they have an emergency.
PERS is comprised of two devices – one being a small tabletop unit and the other an accessorized transmitter that can be worn as a necklace or a bracelet. The unit features a high-volume, two-way communication speaker and connects to any land or cellular line in your loved one’s home. This enables a direct line with our SafetyChoice Centralized Monitoring Station, manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Should any emergency occur, your senior loved one only needs to press the large SOS button on the tabletop unit or on the transmitter and a member of our homecare team at the station will respond promptly.
After we determine the nature of your senior loved one’s distress call, an emergency operator will notify appropriate emergency services. We will also inform family members or designated homecare professionals about your parent’s problem. While help is on the way, our operator will stay on the line with your loved one. To shorten the time of response, SafetyChoice Centralized Monitoring Station stores the medical data of all our clients.
PERS is available in several different models and we also offer other safety products including a selection of medication management systems, window and door alarms, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, bedside pressure mats, and motion detectors.
If you would like to know more about our special brand of homecare services or our senior safety solutions available in your area, call our Wichita, KS, office today. Our friendly client care coordinators can schedule a free presentation of our products, visit your loved one’s home, and recommend the right device for their needs. Comfort Keepers is happy to be of help!
